President Obama this morning early-voted in Chicago, Illinois – where Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn is running for reelection – and then headed over a Quinn campaign office carrying three boxes of donuts and pastries.
“Michelle sent these. We got broccoli, carrots.”
Uh oh. Trouble when he gets home. But well played . . .
Obama, in a politically incorrect mood, also made a comment when voting about the machines being made for short people as he bent over to make his selection. Okay, his exact words were, “folks who are a little short.”
Obama refused to say whom he voted for, citing his role representing all the people. “I can’t say that . . . this is the most important office of democracy, the office of citizenry.”
Not sure if this was some kind of shout out to Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Grimes, the Democratic Senate candidate who has refused to say if she voted for Obama, citing her duties as an officer of the state.
I doubt it, though. I think they’re nauseated by her at the White House. Just my feeling.
Over at campaign headquarters, Obama, whose commitment to his job has been questioned of late, seemed rejuvenated.
“This is me 30 years ago. All energetic. That’s great,” he told volunteers as he worked his way around the room. “Nothing like campaign fever,” he said.
